Herbs and Herbal Supplements for Kidney Failure
What is Kidney ?
Kidney is an organ the helps to clean our body by maintaining the salt and mineral level, excreting the waste products out of the body. Kidney has small structures call nephrons and these nephrons are responsible for the cleaning action of the kidneys. Kidney produces renin that helps in maintaining blood pressure.
About Kidney Failure
Kidney failure is a medical condition in which the nephrons present in kidney are not able to function properly as a result of which the amount of urea and creatinine increases in the blood. Kidney failure is a chronic condition in which the kidney does not clear out the toxic substances of the body and the patient is put on dialysis. Dialysis is an artificial medium used to excrete the waste substances out of the body. Duration of dialysis depends on the condition of the kidneys. Herbal supplements helps the kidneys to function again in a proper manner.

Urine Test : Urine test checks for albumin in urine. Albumin is a protein that can pass into the urine when the kidneys are damaged or not function properly. Higher albumin ratio shows damaged kidneys.
Blood test : Blood test checks GFR (glomular filteration rate) which shows the filteration rate of kidneys.GFR decreases with age. The GFR count should be above 60 which shows normal value. Less GFR shows damaged kidneys.
Blood Pressure : Normal value of blood pressure is recommended for healthy kidneys. If the blood pressure rises above 140/90 then shows unhealthy kidneys.
